Ive stayed here a couple of times recently before/after flights and had excellent experiences both times. Great location for all terminals- the free TFL buses stop across the road and take 5 mins to T1/2/3 or 10 mins to T5. Parking is available on site and is comparatively cheap for the area. Staff friendly, rooms clean and spacious with comfortable... More

The last thing you want to be told at 2 o'clock in the morning when you have a confirmed booking, is that the hotel does not have a room for you. This seems to be the norm for Holiday Inns and me, or is it just me? This is the second time this has happened to me, albeit the last... More

Stayed here on my reward nights points, as I had an early flight. Easy-ish to get to from the terminal, as I arrived by the Underground, you just need to find the Hotel Hoppa bus service, which is poorly signposted in Terminal 3. But now I know, it'd be easy, but at the time it was frustrating. Nice quiet room,... More

We stayed overnight waiting for a flight and it was O.K for that short stay. The decor is quite tired but it looked quite clean though there were little bits on the floor in the elevator and hall.

I usually stay overnight at a Heathrow hotel before a flight the following morning or early afternoon. I have been using Holiday Inns for quite a few years here.

Stayed one night after a long flight from Singapore. Very close to airport and on Hotel Hoppa bus route. Excellent soundproofing - didn't hear planes or people in next room. Breakfast good and service helpful. Would definitely stay again if need room near Heathrow.
